In a sustainable construction, Sharjah Municipality is opening its first eco-friendly park featuring playgrounds made by used car parts and recycled materials, a first of its kind for the region.
These days, the concept of sustainable architecture is more important than ever, in an attempt to live within our environmental limits and reduce the extent of global warming. We’ve witnessed a positive impact on the planet after the Coronavirus lockdown phase, with lower CO2 emission levels, the Ozone layer showing signs of healing and a decline in air pollution worldwide. It goes to show how global warming is entirely upon us to contain.
A lot of architects and urban planners are eyeing towards sustainable architecture of late, using renewable materials and innovative design infused with energy-efficient technology to minimalise the development’s environmental impact. Sharjah Municipality is following suit with the trend too, after opening a park mostly made of used car spare parts and recyclables.
While its location is yet to be revealed, the park plays host to a slew of benches, swings and an artificial lake featuring ornamental fish.
